UNRELIABLE

NCZIMM, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • Summary: I have had this machine for about three years. I purchased it for a home busineass. It took months to get it to work at all and has never been dependable. To say 45% would be generous.

Disappointed, didn't last 3 years - will avoid Samsung printer products in the future

et2980, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Not much to say except that now this printer is failing miserably, lots of jams, random crashes and the software hangs up my PC's. The top part has broken so I have to carefully prop it up when I try to copy or scan, and I'm really the only person who uses this machine.

trouble all the tiem, finally broken

Ryan in Dublin, Amazon
18 March 2010
  • Summary: when it's working, it works ok. I've used just under 3 years, I think I've shaken the toner catridge over 300 times. It always displays a message for low toner even after I replaced it with a brand new one. Now, it's completely broken. Belt transfer got broken and makes a lot of weird noise.

Buy the warranty

Terrence M., Newegg
19 December 2008
  • Summary: I spent a good deal of time researching multifunction devices for my home office. This product always ended up at the top of the list. Having always had a good experience with Samsung electronics I purchased this printer and it worked pretty well for a couple of months.
  • Pros: Lots of features, good print quality.
  • Cons: Paper jam issues. High cost of repair. Few service centers. Terrible on-line support. Short manufacturer's warranty.

  • Pros: nice features decent operating costs
  • Cons: poor quality spent too much time maintaining this printer poor technical support

2-Stars gives them the benefit of the doubt!

Mary Ham Bacon "MRM", Amazon
9 February 2008
  • Summary: I HATE this printer. We have had nothing but problems since day one. The very first day we hooked it up, the transfer unit/belt was bad. We would have to wait days for a new one (never been used before) so we opted to exchange the printer. We chalked it up to poor shipping methods.

Trouble Networking the Printer with HP Network Printers

Bryan S. Coffman, Amazon
17 August 2007
  • Summary: I did a lot of research on laser printers but obviously not enough. We have an HP designjet and the printer drivers from the Designjet and the Samsung conflict. There is a note on the Samsung website that indicates that this conflict might exist but I didn't find it during my research (and their...

Jam, Jam, Jam...

A. Armstrong, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought two of these machines in late 2007. Initially, they performed fairly well, although the color rendition has never been great. One machine is in a small retail store ad one is located in a home office. One is connected via USB, the other via LAN.

What happened to the print quality?

Colorado-zon, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: This is a home office printer. The features are fantastic, the initial print quality very good, and the setup was a breeze. I can scan directly to .pdf files on my laptop from the autofeeder. I have never had a paper jam. However, it does eat toner.
